, of romney biden ticket woul be their results. i'm not kidding. as much as it sounds utterly absurd, just ask that to people who would be most affected by this scenario, president obama and congressman ryan. if your wondering about the numbers at the bottom of the chalkboard, these numbers i found really interesting today. governor romney give a speech in ames, iowa. it is the number of references in romney's i was beach. he talked about really, ice. about the economy in the future of the country. and in a complete reversal of what i call the obama ratio, it is a complete reversal. this 12 represents the number of times that governor romney used fit-person references. wow. hurricane sandy roaring of te eastern seaboard. more than 60 million people in the path of the powerful storm. forecasters fearing damage on an epic scale. is the east coast prepared? president obama once your first time. >> your first time should not be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. lou: the classless, tasteless, knew about my campaign abbottabad that creates voting -- equates money with losing vir

this evening. the president is sending the first lady there today and joe biden on thursday. i want to put up a quote from my friend rory cooper who said "the des moines register" enl dorised carter, mondale, gore and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scien

in youngstown, ohio. he was supposed to appear with bill clinton. instead vice-president joe biden will take its place. live coverage of that event at 3:30 eastern this afternoon on c-span. [video clip] >> if you consider that a while ago no one would ever agree to carry around a tracking device. but now we all carry around cell phone scott. -- phones. and no one would let people read their e-mail, but now all of our e-mail is stored on a server at google, gmail. we are putting our information out as a society. >> we're looking into cybersecurity and cyber warfare, the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of people and machines and the networks as a new domain of war and yet we realized that maybe 1 in one dows and people really understood what cyberspace was and the degree and depth of the vulnerabilities. so what we are trying to do it in the zero days a series is take pieces of it and explain the fundamentals and a platonic idea is everybody from my mom and dad to congress and people around the country can understand, and so maybe start the process of coming up with ways to defend
is in washington. joe biden will be there. live coverage starting at 3:30 p.m. eastern. the president's statement expected at 12:45 eastern. right now, a discussion on the cost of campaign 2012 from this morning's washington journal. that is the last comprehensive report we would get from the campaign, party committees, other groups. when they spend money, especially these outside organizations, they have to report every 24 hours but they have spent. the big picture is pretty well defined. host: the romney and obama campaigns are expected to raise $1 billion each. what does this say about the election? guest: is very hours but they have competitive and close. people are engaged and interested. the president's campaign in 2008 also got to about $1 billion, but altogether with the parties donations. for both of them to be there is extraordinary. host: walk us through what you're looking at in terms of money raised. there are other groups attracting wealthy. >> the campaigns are fairly different. the obama campaign has been very successful in fund- raising, raised $630 million so far. the romney cam
mean things about them. and that democrats and republicans won't be able to work together. "joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." this from the most ruthless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front that i believe the nation has ever seen. this is the person who is saying, "bipartisanship is what we're all about. and you democrats don't understand what that means." >> yeah, but there's, there's one other thing. sometimes you sin by omission. and when the candidates suggest that their plans are going to be sufficient to address the crisis that we are facing, the deficit debt crisis that we're facing, in an environment which we can't afford to tank the economy, they are implying something that's fundamentally false, given what they've told us. president obama is telling us how he's going to get some extra revenue by tax increases. but he's not going to get enough that way. and he hasn't specified the spending cuts. and governor romney's numbers don't work out either. so you've got both implying that my plan is sufficient, when in f
. that has been cancelled. joe biden was supposed to be there, but is not going to be able to go to new hampshire today. people are trying to move around their appearances, the president basically had a couple of appearances and is then coming back. the white house is basically monitoring conditions. host: we are talking about two different changes to the schedule. one is the practicality of not going to a certain swing state, but the other has to deal with how candidates are perceived. talk to us about that angle. host: mike holly had an interesting story today. no one wants to be seen as politicizing a storm, but on the other hand they have a job to do next week. no one has talked about suspending their campaign. after the john mccain experience four years ago, no one would actually use that phrase. there are unpredictable ways in which this could affect people. no one wants to be seen as trying to take political of vantage of this. but the effect could include things like not being able to make appearances in swing states, early voting, or power outages lasted long enough, voting cou
. paul ryan continues to campaign today. >> clinton and biden were out today. >> president obama is the president of the united states. by the way, we only have one president. i don't like the idea of mitt romney frying to go around and pretend he's the president of the united states when he's not. president obama canceled campaign events, and then governor romney -- this is a statement about what you do as president. that's why this storm is an important issue. you have to be president of all the american people and not president of new jersey and virginia because they have republican governors. why didn't mitt romney bother to call the other three? maybe because he has a record where he said back in the defwat last year when he was running trying to be severely conservatively that he would cut fema funding and send it back to the states and privatize it. this is why it's so important, because it illustrates the importance of government and illustrates the two fundamentally two different choices of the two candidates running for the highest office in land. >> chip, i think we ha
on the storm. let me play for you what joe biden said in new hampshire yesterday. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is have the cam taken get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and people's health and property being saved here. >> dave wiegel, could this make-or-break his presidency? >> i think you're going to see a lot of wind breakers and north face jackets and fewer blazers and ties for a couple of days as he go it to these fema centers and does what he can, which is not a lot. he can stop in the path of the storm. the problem for obama that i see, and it's hard to ascertain for a couple of days how this affects him, is this a ground game campaign. they said this for a year. they're right. this campaign wins if it gets out votes at a more effective high rate than the romney campaign does. how does that change it if power goes out in places where people manage phone calms and charging up ipads door to door. that is what i think would have people worried. more than where the president physically can campaign. how much money do they pu

. president clinton will speak in his place in orange county, florida. vice president biden will be back here in the state of ohio. on the republican side, governor romney has been all throughout the state. but he will hit three battleground states in total today. first ohio, iowa and later wisconsin. paul ryan, the vice-presidentialal nominee is crisscrossing florida with three events across the state after he spent two days, friday and saturday throughout the state of ohio. but thng a back seat to sandy. maria molina live in the fox news extreme weather center with the latest on the track for sandy. maria, what do you see this hour. >> bill, good to see you. unfortunately sandy is coming. it is a very large storm system like we've been mentioning. over 800 miles wide. ism packs will be felt in portions of great lakes and west of michigan. waves are building 25 feet because of the storm system by early tuesday morning. portions of west virgina under a blizzard warning. we're expecting two to three feet of? factor that with strong winds you're talking about whiteout conditions across portions
biden is from there and hillary clinton, her dad was born there. eveready starts to campaign in scranton one way or another -- "the office," said, scranton, a town, voters have the gene for politics. host: a phone line to set aside for those of you who lived in pennsylvania. we want to hear from you as we focus on the key battleground state. terry madonna, since 1988, pennsylvania has gone democratic, the last time voting for republican bienick george herbert walker bush. why? guest: the democrats have been able to win suburban voters. , at a philadelphia with a huge edge -- the largest municipality in the state, a heavy concentration of democrats. if you win philadelphia and the suburbs, the four counties in lehigh valley -- out of the southeast by 650,000 votes, is pretty difficult to overcome that edge in other parts of the state, even if the republicans win that infamous t that we often refer to. the other point to remember about pennsylvania is that is dominated for the most part by one television market. there are six tv markets in the state, but philadelphia covers 40% of the vote
consistently --. >>chris: if i may --. >>guest: mr. ryan --. >>chris: joe biden didn't agree with a lot of president obama's positions but you listen to the guy . >>guest: but he has flipped positions now. that is news, mr. ryan. >>chris: actually, moving on to libya for some period of time and the continuing controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in beach embassy that killed four people, we learned on friday the c.i.a. operators on the ground repeatedly requested military backup and were refused and they also asked to be able to go from the annex where they were over to the consulate to help out there and were refused. this week, the father of one of the navy seals, charlie wood, spoke out. >> my son violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at at least 30 people. he risked his life to be a hero. i wish the leadership in the white house had that same level of moral courage and heroism that my son displayed with his life. >>chris: senator you'd come you are on the senate armed services committee and the senate intelligence committee. how do you answer critics that
changes a little bit. however, biden did the youngstown event today. it was still pretty partisan and there were tough hits on romney but i do think from the two principals, the surrogates will be pretty tough but i think for mitt romney and from barack obama, for the last six days of the campaign, assuming it does start up on wednesday again, i bet it's a slightly different tone. >> i think mother nature might take over. thank you, chuck todd. great reporting and analysis, as always. coming up, we'll continue to track sandy as it bears down on the east coast now under an hour, by the way, from making landfall. it's out there coming close. back with more after this. >>> welcome back to "hardball." there you saw it. did you see that crane going down in manhattan? it's a very powerful tropical storm and an hour from making landfall, sandy is. you just saw a partially collapsed crane there that we got on film and it hangs precariously. rehema ellis is live at the scene. this has become iconic with what is happening with the situation. >> reporter: it really has. the crane is starting
romney, that vice-president biden, that the first lady were going to have in new hampshire as well have been canceled and even president obama isn't going to ohio tomorrow. he's going to let bill clinton, the former president campaign for him in youngstown, ohio instead. it looks like mitt romney is going to be hunkering down in ohio a state he needs to be better in. president obama is going to be stuck at the white house. and he went to florida tonight so he could be in place for a rally tomorrow. he may regret going there at all because he'll be coming back to the white house to monitor the storm, but it's going to be halting a lot of political activity going forward into wednesday. maybe even thursday, but right now the white house is looking at canceling even more events, potentially another event that the president was going to be having in wisconsin on tuesday night. so, it looks like we're coming to a stand still for a couple of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with

's changes, the storm had already altered the campaign travel calendar, if you will. vice president biden cut short a new hampshire campaign swing. and instead diverted to ohio. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is let this campaign get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and people's health and property being saved here. >> the tuesday schedule is also in jeopardy. romney canceled a stop in new hampshire. the president canceled one in colorado. this morning fema director craig fugate said preparations are in place to respond to the storm. >> we've been getting ready for the last couple days. i guess the biggest question with sandy is exactly where and how much damages are we going to see. we've got teams basically all the way from down in north carolina where it was earlier impacting the outer banks all the way to maine. we have teams in states as far inland as west virginia. we've been moving generators. we've been moving basic supplies that we would need after the storm. so it's a large response area, but we also have a lot of good teams with
leader, storm forces romneys, biden to cancel visits. the storm has forced officials to reschedule the granite state debate for the first congressional district for next friday. in florida a race to the finish, so says the daytona beach news junl as local volunteers move into high gear. team romney is feeling excited in florida while team obama is trying to finish with a dramatic push. that big push was supposed to include a joint appearance with president clinton, but sandy rained on that parade. president obama is now back squarely in washington to deal with this storm leechl leaaving former president with the stage all to himself. >> as the president said, governor, you were in bain capital. if i brought a deal to you and said i have a great idea for a business with jobs like crazy, and you said where's your budget? i'd say, see me on that in a year or two, you'd run me out of our office. how can you expect us to vote for you for president. you won't give us the budget when you say it's the biggest problem in the country. vote for the man with the plan. vote for barack obama. >>
-president biden was there today's topic for reelection. expected to be joined by former president bill clinton, and you can watch that live at 3:30 p.m. eastern on our companion network c-span. >> as you consider that, you know, while ago no one would ever agree to carry around a tracking device. now we all carry around cell phones, which you can inherit the track. no one would ever have posted, you know, let anyone read their you know, right now all of us use the e-mail and it's all store on the server by go will. and so this is interesting that we, as a society, have given our information out. >> we were looking into cyber and cyber security, cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of people and machines and networks as a new domain of war, and yet we realize that maybe one in 1,000 people really understood what cyberspace was and the degree and depth of the vulnerabilities. and so what we are trying to do is to take pieces of it and explain the fundamentals of the platonic idea that everybody from my mom and dad to congress and people around the country can understan
agenda is. >> vice president joe biden issued a warning on that front. listen to what he had to say about romney and who he is beholden to. >> ask him a question, when have you ever seen governor romney take on the establishment of his party? what do you think the prospects are that governor romney would attempt to do anything he now says he supports? q. what do you think the chances of him doing that with the republican controlled congress to keep the congress? what do you think the chances are he's going to tell the tea party guys you're dead wrong. that's what he ae's saying now. >> romney has admitted there may be good democrats in the world and they may care about america but at the end of the day is that proof that he will work with democrats and take a moderate position given his track record thus far in listening to the tea party and refusing to plant a flag in the grounts on anything running counter to the republican agenda. >> i am a registered democrat because i thought they hated america. that's news to me. but second of all -- >> i want to point out liz is not speaking for th
